How do I solve the integration of a rational function such as:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x^2 - 6x - 2

(x^2 + 2)^2

If possible, please list the general rule of solving, I DO NOT want the answer, I simply want to know the way of solving it.

Thanks in advance!

So far I got to the part where A = 1, B = -6 and C = -4, what can I do next?
